Hi,
I'm fairly new here but I've been reading a lot of messages. I was at a Quilt Show in Columbus, Ohio this past June. I saw quite a few ladies when we were leaving bringing there goodies out in a device that was called a "Quilters Trolley". This was embroidered on the top flap. It had a extended handle and wheels. It almost looked like a tote for a sewing machine but smaller with soft sides. I went through the show book looking at all the shop sites but couldn't find where these ladies found the tote. I even asked about it at my LQS with no luck. I would like to get one for going to quilt shows to carry all my great finds home they get a little heavy by the end of the day and would be easier to keep track of in the tote.
Any help finding this would be appreciated, as I would like to get one before the next show.

Thanks,
Donna C. Ohio

I'm wondering if it was a scrapbookers tote, or they might call it a crafters tote. Try JoAnn's, or check one of the online fabric stores{ie: Fabric Depot}
You might even look at sewing machine totes.
Hope this helps and good luck.
Let us know if you find one...
:XD:

Cool, there are a couple of other totes at Overstock that would work also.
Never thought to look there.. :thumbup:
:XD:
PS: shipping is very reasonable too.. Always a good selling point..

unfotunately most big shows won't allow you to use wheeled anything anymore - saying they are dangerous. Now I see a lot of backpacks that when people turn around, are hitting someone in the face. Aren't the carts safer?

What about just a plain old wheeled suitcase? That's what it looks like to me, and a heck of a lot cheaper too!!

That thing looks awesome! Too bad it's sold out on O.S.

I could have used something like that at the Long Beach show yesterday. By the end of the day my friends had to carry my 2 bags and I did not buy that much. But I have bad shoulders and my back was killing me.
